To Publish a WordPress Theme on the official theme repository at WordPress Extend, there is long list of requirements given on the theme developer’s link Theme Development Checklist. Your also need to localize and internationalize your theme so it can be translated. The Process for localization is very simple that i will discuss some other time, meanwhile your can Google it. Also you have to create Subversion to maintain different version of your theme.
WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world but the down side is that it attracts a lots of hackers. Make sure your WordPress installation is up to date with the latest release. However, there are a number of other little things you can do, today I’ll walk you through several plugins that will help you maintain a secure installation.
1. WordPress Firewall
WordPress Firewall monitors HTTP requests for blacklisted phrases and can email you when it finds
something suspicious. This WordPress plugin investigates web requests with simple WordPress-specific heuristics to identify and stop most obvious attacks. There exist a few powerful generic modules that do this; but they’re not always installed on web servers, and difficult to configure.
2. Exploit Scanner
This plugin searches the files on your website, and the posts and comments tables of your database for anything suspicious. It also examines your list of active plugins for unusual filenames.
It does not remove anything. That is left to the user to do.
3. Audit Trail
Audit Trail is a plugin to keep track of what is going on inside your blog. It does this by recording certain actions (such as who logged in and when) and storing this information in the form of a log. Not only that but it records the full contents of posts (and pages) and allows you to restore a post to a previous version at any time.
I’ve shown you a handful of plugins that help you keep an eye on your installation. Now that you know what to look for, these tools should help you maintain a fast, healthy WordPress site.
A Multilingual Travel Magazine WordPress theme ideal for those wanting to run a magazine website related to Travel, City Portals and Lifestyle in general. The theme features a Home page article slider, video rotator, banner management , full featured theme options and more.
A multi search destination is featured on the right sidebar where you can pick any combination of categories to display filtered results.
WordPress with combination of plugins, it is possible to share documents. Although, It is always very tricky for a committee or a club, finding a good way to share news and documents. The Members Only plugin from ChurChcrunch is a WordPress plugin that allows you to make your blog only viewable to visitors that are logged in.
The List Child Attachments plugin will list any files uploaded to a post or page, without the user having to insert each one into the content individually. In other words, it works like a gallery, but for files other than images.
The Event Calendar (his plugin is a more enhanced version of the basic calendar provided by WordPress.) or GigPress (a powerful WordPress plugin designed for musicians and other performers. Manage all of your upcoming and past performances) will be useful if your group needs to keep track of events.
To let the group stay in touch by e-mail, Subscribe 2 and Subscribe to Comments (a robust plugin that enables commenters to sign up for e-mail notification of subsequent entries)will notify all users of new posts
and new comments.
If your group needs to review documents, the Comment Author Checklist plugin (a WordPress plugin for writers’ critique groups and any other group blog doing some kind of document review) prints a list of registered users and crosses people’s names off the list once they’ve commented on a post.
